Long Term Inactivity

We spend 7 months in one home and the rest of the year in the other.

My guess is that it is not a good idea to leave the Sonos Move on it's charging base for that long, but I'm not sure what happens if I leave it powered down for that long either.

Would it just be better to drag it back and forth with me?

It is a tad bulky and heavy to bring on an airplane, and I'm not sure if it's a good idea to put it in checked luggage, given some concerns with lithium-ion batteries.

Thanks

Hi! Welcome to the community. Our team designed the chemistry of the battery with this sort of situation in mind, where it might sit on the cradle for a while. The battery will not see faster degradation if always plugged in or charging.
